Inspectors from OFSTED and the Care Quality Commission visited Sheffield between 12 and 16 November 2018 to assess how well our local area identifies and meets the needs of children and young people aged 0-25 years who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).
Respiratory illnesses more commonly affect people with a learning disability. This is why since 2014 children and adults with a learning disability have been included in the list of “at risk” groups that are covered by the flu vaccination programme. Family carers and Personal Assistants (PAs) are also eligible for a flu jab.
If you are struggling to combine paid work and caring, a specialist employment advice service for carers, provided by Sheffield Carers Centre through the Sheffield Occupational Health Advisory Service (SOHAS), might be able to help.
From 12 to 16 November 2018, Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) will visit Sheffield to find out how effectively the local area meets its responsibilities to children and young people aged 0-25 years who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).
Sheffield City Council is now accepting applications for the Short Breaks Grant. You can apply for up to £400 per family. The deadline for applications is 31 January 2019, and the activity must have taken place and the grant must be spent before 31 March 2019.
Sheffield City Council has approved a range of measures designed to save around £550,000 from the city’s short breaks budget. The changes affect the £400 short break grant and after-school, holiday and Saturday clubs accessed through the SNIPS service.
